We book 3 nights at Hotel Luamey over Xmas based on TA reviews. The hotel location was good, a short walk along an unpaved road to the shops, restaurants and beach. The staff were helpful and friendly. Some rooms overlooking the pool seemed large and had nice patios with hammocks. We were given a small room on the ground floor, next to the bar, kitchen and restaurant space, so a bit noisy at night. The room had a queen bed, a large shower and bathroom area, and a patio space to have breakfast and to chill. The other rooms on ground floor have hammocks and fridge too, ours didn’t. The hotel grounds looked the part of a boutique hotel at night, but a bit tired looking in the day time, and we came at a time when trees were dropping their leaves, so the pool was not as clean as we would have liked, but still a relaxing area. Parking was limited.

For those who surf, you can borrow surf boards.

Room tip: There are 3 nice rooms overlooking the pool grounds with private patio and hammocks. The room behind the bar is nice decorated but small.

Absolutely the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. Pool dirty. No towels. Room smelled like urine and cooking smells. Gave us the ugliest smallest room no extra bed and we were with a small kid. Terrible reception staff offered to refund us, a lie, totally corrupt awful hotel. Do not give them your money.

Being an avid trip advisor user I had high hopes for our stay at Luamey with all the great reviews, but sadly it didn't come close to living up to the hype, mainly because of how dirty it was.

Our room was on the first floor and as we entered it we were immediately hit by some unpleasant smell that lingered throughout our stay. Add to that the fact that there were ants and bugs all over the room, the bed sheets were dirty with long black hairs stuck to them (not ours), blood underneath the toilet seat and more dark hairs in the shower, it didn't make for an enjoyable stay!! Luckily we had only booked for one night and had an awesome surf lesson which boosted our memories of Tamarindo but had it not, our stay at Luamey would have ruined our experience of the town.

We booked a trip to Costa Rica and planned to stay at Hotel Luamey. Unfortunately we had to cancel our vacation. We reached out to Hotel Luamey and followed the steps for the reservation cancellation, and we were well within the 30 day cancellation window (at 60 days out). We had paid a $500 deposit at the time of the booking and were told the deposit would be refunded to the card. It has been over 30 days now and still no refund of the deposit. Hotel Luamey has stopped responding to our calls and emails, and we've now opened a dispute with the credit card company.

We decide to choose hotel luamey for our family vacation and it was the best decision. We had 2 kids and they enjoy the hotel so much, a block from the beach and super centrally located in the middle of town. The rooms are very nice and clean and the pool is great to relax we even saw the monkeys from the pool few times. Myriam recomended few tour and activities and we had an amazing time and didnt have to worry about anything. All the staff at luamey trat us like friends extremily frienly. We always feel welcome. Definately an amazing place to relax and enjoy. Tamarindo has so many facilities that traveling with kids is the perfect location. We definitely recommend hotel luamey
